Editing completed, The Stone Girl, second in the new Harder They Fall series is now available.  Another page turner by Solomon Carter.

Dan and Eva take an unlikely looking case  – and end up always one step behind the truth.

Is their old friend pulling a fast one?

Probably. And what about the young woman with the mysterious pendant around her neck?

Some gems are too precious to be ignored.

And some are too deadly to touch.

When the Private Investigators discover the true value of the grey stone, all becomes clear. It means big trouble all round.

But what can they do about it? Whichever route they choose spells trouble.

Meanwhile, another of Dan’s old boxing friends is in dire trouble. And another refused to see the truth. His arrogance could be his undoing… Unless the man called Cato kills him first…

Cads, cut throats, psychopaths, liars and mysterious femme fatales… In The Stone Girl, Eva and Dan must overcome them all.

And even if they do, the nightmare won’t end there…

In a truly thrilling conclusion, villains of all stripes plot the downfall of their foes. To the victor the spoils. But the losers might face their death.

Released FREE today, the first in the new series – Harder They Fall.

ONE COLD DARK MORNING PI DAN BRADLEY GOES FOR A RUN.  HE SEES A SUSPICIOUS SET OF HEADLIGHTS SWITCH OFF IN THE DISTANCE … MOMENTS LATER HIS LIFE IS CHANGED FOREVER.

After a critical incident, Private Investigators Eva Roberts and Dan Bradley are left to pick up the pieces. They never give up. But this new challenge seems insurmountable – and with every passing moment the darkness closes in.

While his body heals Dan must track down a ruthless killer. Trouble is, these scars won’t heal quickly… and Dan’s new nemesis may strike at any time.

Dan’s partner, the serious and beautiful Eva Roberts, persuades Dan to take a working break away to the South West. They investigate a mysterious death in picturesque Devon – but this getaway turns out to be anything but relaxing.

And as they work the Devon case fate intervenes… and the nightmare Dan cannot avoid tracks him down.

There are more victims.

Some are in denial – some too scared to face the truth.

But Dan has no choice. He must face his demons – or die trying.

And the Devon case which started out as a novelty becomes a deadly crisis. A  blogger is dead… and her housemates may be next. And there could yet be international consequences…

In a truly thrilling conclusion an unsolved murder is brought back to life and a killer is exposed. But the monster behind the vendetta will soon strike again… 

Perfect for fans of Ian Rankin, Helen Durrant, Joy Ellis and LJ Ross. If you love to read gripping thrillers with flawed characters, humour and a hint of romance, you will love Roberts and Bradley in Harder They Fall.
